The Intel Core i3-7350K is Intel’s first unlocked i3 processor. The base clock of 4.2 GHz on the 7350K is matched only by the flagship i7-7700K. Consequently for desktop applications and the vast majority of tasks that rely primarily on single core performance the 7350K excels. The i3-7350K’s key feature is an unlocked multiplier which should allow a comfortable overclock (on air) to 4.8 GHz. This makes the 7350K far better suited to desktop workloads than any other non-K CPU. The Achilles heel of only having two physical cores means that for tasks that can use more than two cores such as video encoding or software development, the 7350K lags behind its quad core counterparts. For typical desktop computing such as email, browsing with multiple tabs, office documents and playing the majority of games the i3-7350K is a viable option, but at current prices it’s bested by both the i5-7600K and i7-7700K which offer far better value for money. [Jan '17 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1400 is the entry-level chip from AMD's latest Ryzen 5 series which is aimed at the mainstream market. The 1400 is a budget quad core, 8 threaded CPU with base/boost clocks of 3.2/3.4 GHz. Like most the other non-X Ryzen CPUs the 1400 comes with a decent cooler included in the box (Wraith Stealth in this case). Modestly priced at $169 the 1400 is in direct competition with Intel's recent Kaby Lake dual core, four threaded i3-7350k which runs at a base clock of 4.2GHz. The 1400's 8 threads allow a near 40% lead in multi-core processing, but for single-core tasks the 7350K is 45% faster. The Ryzen 5 1500X commands a $20 premium and offers a 25% increase in effective speed over the 1400. Although the 1400 only has a base clock of 3.2 GHz it should more or less match the 1500X when overclocked. Provided it is overclocked, the 1400 joins the other non-X Ryzen models in offering the best bang for your buck. Users not keen on overclocking would probably do better to consider the 1500X at this price point. [Apr '17 CPUPro]
